A new era of analytics is being engendered by cloud computing. The cloud gives us the power to collect and integrate data from an enormous variety of sources, to process big data at amazing scale and economics, to dramatically simplify development and deployment, and offer amazing intelligent APIs and applications as hosted services. In this keynote talk, Joseph will review with demos and examples how these game-changing developments will change how we live, work and play, and show the enormous opportunities for customers and partners to capitalize on these innovations.
Data is important, whether it's stored on- or offline it's always good to have backups. Protecting your assets is a serious and cautious task. With the coming of hybrid solutions and configurations we get a lot of possibilities to do cloud backup. In this talk I'll talk about what the Azure platform can provide you as support for backing up your assets: topics brought to attention are Blob Storage, Backup Vault, SQL Server and SQL databases, geo-redundancy and much, much more. This will be backed with out-of-the box tools, partner tools and common tools.
Back-end systems of record are often too complex to expose directly to the web. They are stable, hardened and dependable but they are often based on legacy technologies and not always easy to expose to Web standards like HTTP. During this session, we will look at how to evaluate existing systems and build an API using ASP.NET Core.
Publishing Exchange used to be easy. You installed Microsoft Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server or Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) and considered your work done. But with the changes in roadmap of Microsoft security products such as TMG and UAG, and the addition of features like ARR and WAP, the sea of TLAs has become more complex than ever. Come and learn what the real risks are when publishing Exchange to the Internet, what your choices are, which you should choose, and how to deploy them. There's a TLA for everyone when it comes to publishing Exchange, but make sure you know which is which and which one you need, if at all. The Windows team have added an additional component called Application Request Routing 3.0 to the Internet Information Service (IIS) role, which enables IIS to handle reverse proxy requests and also perform layer seven Load Balancing of these requests.
